SOURCE: Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice

THE WAY A DISPENSER CHANGES FROM CUBES TO CRUSHED ICE IS BY RAISING AN ARM THAT RUNS ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE ICE BIN. IF IT SETS FOR A LONG TIME, IT CAN GET A BUILUP OF FROST OR ICE THAT KEEPS IT FROM MOVING. PULL THE ICE BIN OUT AND TRY TWISTING THE END OF THE ARM MANUALLY. IT SHOULD OPEN A DOOR AT THE FRONT OF THE BIN THAT WOULD ALLOW THE ICE TO BYPASS THE CUTTER ASSEMBLY.
ALSO,WITH THE ICE BIN REMOVED, PUSH THE DOOR SWITCH BUTTON CLOSED BUT KEEP THE FREEZER DOOR OPEN. WHERE THAT ARM GOES IN THROUGH THE BACK WALL, CHECK FOR MOVEMENT OF A ROD UPWARD WHEN YOU CALL FOR CUBED ICE. IF YOU HEAR A LOUD HUM BUT THE ROD DOESN'T MOVE, YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE SOLENOID ASSEMBLY IN THAT MODULE.

SOURCE: Ice maker stopped working

Good day,
A step by step procedure should resolve your problem. If the dispenser is working, you can skip that step.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

I have an Amana Side by Side Refrigerator with an icemaker and water dispenser. I don't have a water line to hook up to the refrigerator. Is there an on/off switch for the icemaker?


There should be a stop control near the icemaker where it collects ice in the tray. It should be an L-shaped lever. move it to the stop position.

Amana side by side model ARS9269BS dispenses water very slowly.\r\nReplacing filter did not help. Now, also, the produce and liquids are freezing even though we have turned cooler control to the number 2.


Hello,
The water dispensing and the things freezeing is related. The problem is a the air damper that located in the upper left side wall of the freshfood section is sticking open and allowing too much cold air to flow into the freshfood compartment and that damper needs to be replaced. The part number for that damper asm. is 12571701 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
appliancepartspros.com

You coull semi regulate the temp for now by turning off freezer control off overnight and back on in the morning till the damper can be replaced.

The ice and water dispenser on my Amana Refrigerator slowly leaks water. Are there repair parts to correct this? And how is the plastic frame containing the dispenser removed from the door?


The problem is most likely not in the door. When the dispense button is pressed it actuates an electric solenoid valve in the rear of the refrigerator that opens and allows the water to flow. Over time the valve seals get worn and the water seeps by. This is what usually causes a drip at the water dispenser. If there is a drip at the ice side then the door is jammed and is not closing fully. This allows the ice at the opening to melt and drip. Hope this helps. Please accept and rate. Good luck.

WATER DOES NOT DISPENSE FROM DOOR


Sounds like the water solenoid valve poppet is sticking in the closed position. You will need to replace the assembly. It is located behind the fridge at the lower corner.

Amana refrigerator not running but light and water dispenser work


Hi, Remove the front kick plate at the bottom and locate the defrost timer box. You will see a hole and there will be a round switch you can turn. Turn in clock wise and see if the refrigerator starts.
If it starts, the timer needs changed. If it does not starts. locate the cold control (thermostat)
Check continuity on the switch. If it is the on position and the circuit is open, you need to replace it.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Water dispenser not working


I have a Hitachi R-M800GM.

When i operate the water dispenser, water flows out from the dispenser [not strong flow]. There is also water flowing out at the bottom of the freezer door [hinge area]

I think the line running inside the freezer door may have come loose? If so, how to reattach it? Do u have any layout drawings of how the hose is being connected.

Please help.

Thanks,

Rick

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


Pull out your ice bin. In the back of the bin you will see a rod protruding from one side. That rod goes into an opening in the rear of the freezer. There is a solenoid behind that opening that raises and lowers the arm on the ice bin giving you crushed or cubed ice. Check to see if that solenoid is froze up or if your rod got stuck under it. If all check ok then replace that solenoid.
